I found that on etrailer and considered using it, however my frame it totally boxed and I would have no way to fish the bolts into the frame.

How about through and through bolts?

Another idea is to contact Jayco and ask them if you could install the bike tray they offer as an option. It is rated for 250 lbs.

People double tow all the time with fivers, but im not sure how it would work out with a travel trailer.

Any ideas? does anyone on here double tow with a travel trailer?

They fit frame rails from 22" to 72". Rated for 350 lbs of vertical load, 3500 towing.

A lot of states allow towing with a 5er but not so many allow towing behind a travel trailer. Check out this site.

I thought about that. Honestly I am going to get a quote from the weld/fab shop and based on how cheap or expensive it is I may get more creative with that unit from etrailer. If it is close to the same price or incrementally more expensive I will just let them do the work.
